“Lovely hotel in Amalfi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We spent a week at Hotel Aurora, and loved every minute of it. The location of the hotel is terrific; just a short stroll from downtown Amalfi, and right on the coast. We had a room on the fourth floor with a large terrace overlooking the harbour. A perfect spot for serious "boat and passenger watching", but also somewhat noisy (sound travels upwards). I would suggest asking for a room overlooking the beach rather than a room overlooking the harbour. The staff are friendly, service oriented. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the beach if you prefer quiet.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. Location is our great value, on the Yachting Pier but far away from hustle of city centre. Please know I will be passing on your comments to the rest of my team who will be pleased.
I look forward to welcoming you back to the Hotel Aurora soon.

Unfortunately we only had 1 night in Amalfi and this hotel but it was a real treat. The room was spacious and air conditioned (though this and the power only worked with the key in the slot). It was clean and the location great. Breakfast was good, simple continental with waiters only too happy to offer coffee. What's best about this hotel, however, is the service. We had a train dilemma and, as such, needed to leave our bags there for the day when we left. They were more than happy to accommodate that and allow us to continue to sit in their lobby and use their wifi which was great. He also printed our train ticket and was more than happy to help us with restaurant reservations. Overall a great stay, I would come back and recommend this hotel.

Although we possibly stayed in one of Aurora's smallest rooms, the hotel's location and staff sure made up for the lack of space. The lounge bar area and alfresco breakfast area with a fabulous view were superb and gave areal authentic and Amalfi feel to our stay. Access to a private and secluded beach and the helpful and friendly nature of all staff made our stay most memorable and relaxing. Just what we needed. We would not hesitate in going to aurora again and would recommend this hotel to our families and friends.

I can highly recommend the Hotel Aurora to anyone wanting to enjoy the delights of Amalfi (and there are so many of them!!!). Ideally situated at the quiet end of the harbourside (no traffic....you can awake to just the gentle lap-lapping of the waves if your room faces the ocean) and the pleasant (5 to 7 minute?) level stroll along the foreshore (past lots of restaurants) to the town centre does not involve any steps, which is a bonus when it comes to selecting Amalfi accommodation. The views of Amalfi and the ocean from the rooms with private balconies are simply stunning. To access the privately-owned beach in front of the hotel involves a daily fee (but is free after 4 pm), so it is more exclusive and less busy.....another bonus. Breakfasts served on the delightful flower-filled terrace were magnificent and memorable. A special mention about the staff.....many thanks, Andrea, Andrew and all the staff for being so obliging and friendly throughout our stay.....attention to guests' requests was exceptional. This was my third visit to Amalfi and previously I stayed at more expensive hotels, but I would choose the Aurora again as a preference for any future Amalfi holiday.

Just back from this hotel and was pleased with our stay.
It's situated right at the end of Amalfi so just a few minutes walk from loads of resturants and shops. It's a shame it doesn't have a pool or its own beach but then neither do most of the hotels. All along the Amalfi coast its almost impossible to enjoy the simple pleasure of a stroll on the beach. Everywhere it costs to even walk down to the sea. Have the breakfast at the Aurora as its as good as you'll get anywhere and works out a lot cheaper. Nice sized, clean rooms with towels changed every day. We had a lovely balcony with a great view. A special mention for Andrew, who was extremely helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. He was a real nice guy who went out of his way to make our stay special. The rest of the staff were also great and went the extra mile to make sure we were looked after.

We stayed here on our recent trip. The rooms were clean and tidy, the reception staff were extremely helpful and the view was simply stunning. The balcony faced directly to the ocean with full ocean views. This location was in short walking distance to the main town but far enough away to feel secluded. Fantastic hotel, would highly recommend..

This small hotel is a gem of a hotel, beautifully situated overlooking the harbour with a magnificent flower filled terrace to eat breakfast on. I have never met nicer, more helpful staff, they couldn't do enough for us. Amalfi is the perfect location for trips to Sorrento, Capri & Ravello & of course Amalfi town & cathedral. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would heartily recommend the Aurora.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Aurora Hotel is the perfect spot to spend an unforgettable holiday in Amalfi.Located nearby the Amalfi Marina, the hotel is only 500 meters from the hustle and bustle of Piazza Duomo. It is the ideal accommodation for visiting the Amalfi Coast and its picturesque villages, such as Ravello, Positano, Capri and even the Pompeii Excavation, which are all within easy reach. The bus station and the wharf are only 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel. After a long day-trip, Aurora Hotel is just a short walk to downtown and the beach, and it is accessible without climbing stairs. One final recommendation from the hotel management: if you want to spend a few relaxing days in Amalfi, please check Aurora Hotel location on Google Maps and compare it with other hotels. Most of Amalfi hotels are located in the noisy old Town, accessible by climbing long stairs; some others are located on the highway to Positano, so you will need to take the bus, a taxi or your car in order to reach the city, driving down one of the busiest roads in Italy! ... more   less
